Join PTSO Today!

It's not too late to join the PTSO!  We welcome and encourage all parents, teachers and students to become a member! The PTSO supports many programs at our school and the more members we have the greater difference we can make in our children's education. 
Another way to make an impact at SRMS is to donate to the Eagles Booster Club. A new program we are so proud to be introducing this year is the Teacher Grant Program! Teachers now have the opportunity to apply to receive a grant that they can use to purchase classroom programs and materials. Want to support our new Teacher Grant Program or help purchase educational materials identified by the staff? Please consider donating today!
Donations of $75 or more will be recognized on our painted mural wall in the school breezeway.  This is also a great way for 8th graders to leave their mark at SRMS!
Donations are tax deductible.  Click here http://www.srmsptso.org/about/membership to join the PTSO or to donate to the Eagle Booster Club.
